MySearchResults.com Removal (Uninstall Guide)

MySearchResults.com is another dangerous browser hijacker. As soon as PC is infected with this malware, the internet browser’s homepage and default search engine is set to mysearchresults.com. This program is dangerous for most of the PC users as it can infect all major internet browsers such as IE, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

MySearchResults hijack

The promoted search engine is useless because the search results are filled with sponsored links. This promotion method, when a website is ranked higher in the search results than it is supposed to be, is called Blackhat SEO. Furthermore, the domain gathers data about the searches you have conducted.

Although this browser hijacker can’t be qualified as a virus, MySearchResults.com still has a lot of potentially dangerous or annoying features. For instance, it has the capabilities to infiltrate deeply into the OS, just like a typical rootkit. The IT specialist came up with a name for this kind of programs. They call them “PUPs”, which is an acronym for potentially unwanted program.

MySearchResults.com is acting as an adware too. Once the computer is infected with this malware, the user will be presented with increased amount of pop-ads, banners and other commercial material. As mentioned before, internet browser’s settings such as homepage and default search engine will be modified. In addition to that, IE users might experience longer loading time, whereas Firefox users might find their browser settings locked. Moreover, MySearchResults.com browser hijacker could disable Firefox Content Security Policy, thus enabling cross site scripting of the plugin.

    Thank you for the information. After removing a program named “Default page” or “Default tab” in the Add or Remove Programs utility, the problem was solved. To be sure it is that program, klick on the tab “Click here for support information”. When this gives “MySearchResults.com” as info, this is the program or programs you have to remove.

    I installed something recently created a new Email with a provider and asked if I wanted “MySearchResults” as the default search engine. I told it “no.” I should have known it would ignore my “no.” I can’t find it with any of the suggested ways to find it. “Manage Add Ons” would not allow me to delete it. Now what?
